Paint.NET Portable using IExpress

Posted by kiquenet en 16 agosto 2012

a useful tool for compressing these files into a self-extracting executable, and it has shipped with Windows for quite some time: iexpress.exe.

Its purpose is to extract files and run a setup application, but nothing precludes it from running another application such asPaint.NET.exe. Run iexpress.exe which starts a simple wizard. The most important steps to remember are to have it executePaint.NET.exe, and to store the files using long names. The latter step will prevent the package from running on Windows 95, but the .NET Framework 2.0 which at least Paint.NET v2.62 requires isn’t supported on Windows 95 anyway.

The result was a 595 KB executable. It quickly extracts the files to a sub-directory under %TMP% and runs Paint.NET.exe. When you close Paint.NET.exe the temporary files are cleaned-up. Sure, better compression rates are likely possible using different tools but this is a good start to compress Paint.NET even more without adding extra steps to start the application.
